Ayal Zakin

Visual Communication Design
Award for an emerging designer

“Design education is the key to creating social change and building bridges between the various groups in our society. I am convinced that we, as human beings and as designers, have a socio-cultural responsibility to actively use our tools and operate in the Israeli space, in order to impact the political and social reality in which we live.”

Independent graphic designer Ayal Zakin specializes in design for art, culture and academia. Born in 1985, Zakin is a graduate of the Visual Communication department at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and for the past three years has been a faculty member at the department and at Bezalel’s Haredi Branch, teaching typography design thinking and graduation project consultant.

Zakin is a recipient of the 2022 Edmond de Rothschild Design Award for Emerging Visual Communication Designers.
